>> that's the bottom line, if she hints that the democrats have to go back to the home districts and have the discussions, but there are a number of centric democrats who don't want any debate on it. they doesn't want to be held to the fire, the feet to fire, local ads running and he voted against tax cuts or for tax cuts. they want hands off until after the election. >> and that's what harry reid was talking about in the senate. he said, i think it was thursday afternoon, yes, we do need to extend the tax cuts and we need to do it by the end of the year because they'll expire by the end of the year, but they're not going to do it in the senate until after the mid term elections, which is it going to be? >> we had a debate on the topic and it got heatedment take a listen. >> look, leave aside the fact how crazy it is to talk about raising taxes on anyone, especially the job creators in such a terrible economy. this president and this congress has had two years to do something about this. harry reid and the democrats would have done it if the republicans would have let them.
they put on the table let's vote on middle class tax cuts and the republican leadership said no, we won't let you vote on that for 98% of americans because we need to have 700 billion dollars for 1.6% of taxpayers. >> let me bottom line this for you. which is the lame duck congress idea, right. if they don't vote on it now, they punted down the field and wait till after the election when maybe they lose the house and the majority in the house and the lame duck congress that got voted out then gets to vote on it. there's a long history of that happening in the united states. '98 that happened when republicans lost they voted president clinton, and would that happen with a lame duck congress, no heat to the fire. >> that doesn't help the voters as mike pointed out, trying to make a decision about the voting booth. nice for a decision before they do that. >> i want to know what their vote is before i vote in
november. >> and your vote may vote-- >> following that. in the meantime talk about mammoud ahmadnejad, doing a series of sitdowns meeting and one very significant one. he sat down with the u.s. hiker, sarah shourd just freed after 14 months in captivity. she of course wanted to talk to him and appeal to, if he had any shred of humanity to let her fiance and her friend out of jail. they were hiking when they got lost and she wanted to make her case directly to ahmadnejad. >> her fiance there and also friend josh fatal lives in the philadelphia area so she's desperate. ahmadnejad's in new york, let's go over there. she took her mother, came to new york, asked can i come to your hotel and meet with you. and they did. and the only-- she didn't want to talk about if there was any break through and apparently there is not a break through and he sat down with eric shawn she walked out of there and said it was a
very gracious on the president's part, ahmadnejad's part to meet with me. it was a good meeting, but she didn't come out with very good news. she didn't say my friends are coming home. >> as you pointed out he sat down with erik shaun and said basically show me the evidence they weren't spying, take a listen. >> i would be the first person who wants democracy in my country. i am the result of a democracy, the way i satisfy it, on the highest level of democracy in history. >> he was addressing there the democracy question about erik shaun also got into, but it all comes back to the hiker question because he has limited power in that country and i think a lot of people in iran think of him here as a bit of a show boating and he's show boating when the real power resides in other quadrants of the iranian government. it underlines the question he
might not be anything to do to release the hikers. >> he might have to go through the court process. and interesting to hear him talk about democracy, he's the big e bigge biggest of democracy unless he's voted out and someone else tries to claim victory. that's his version i think of democracy as we've seen in the past and eric shawn asked him about the burning question of the day. whether or not iran is building nuclear bombs. >> i have said on numerous occasions that we do not want an atommic bomb. >> why should we believe you? >> we do not insist that you should believe us. we've never said that you should. you are free not to believe us, but why would you insist on imposing your view on us, with resolutions, with force? >> he sounds like the rid letter. >> he does, doesn't he? >> that was not an answer. >> he was frank gore sham from
the '60's batman show, the riddler. >> i got that reference. >> i didn't. >> we'll hear what else he has to say to eric shawn. >> we have to talk about the flight from canada to pakistan and landed in sweden after authorities got a tip that one passenger was taken into question and it was flying from toronto to karachi. the man was not on any international no-fly lists. the obama administration urges a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit on behalf of clerics and terrorists, saying that the lawsuit asks for an american court to block the government from protecting its own citizens. if alackey should be held
accountable for his actions. and demand that they disclose information possibly harming national security. secretary of state hillary clinton trying to hold mideast peace talks and met with president abbas last night and the palestinians threatened to quit the talks unless israel extends the moratorium on building west bargainingpires t. >> the coffee party kicks off in louisville, kentucky. the grass roots political group that starts on facebook in january of 2009 as a reaction to of course the tea party. they say they want cooperation in the government, founder and abel park claims the party gives everyone a place to participate in the process. >> they're all wired the whole time. >> the milk party and the sugar party. >> the keg party. >> they all come together
after this. >> coming up on the show we've told you about the multi-million dollar payout for a family who believes vaccines gave her child audition and another says they're egg norring her. a lawyer with fascinating details about the lawsuits at work next. >> harvard university bans the rotc from campus, but its dean lobbying for illegal immigrants who want to attend college. does the school have its priorities mixed up here? we'll talk about that with daniel webster.

well, but appears the government has something else in mind and it's not going to be welcomed news for these parents. one of those parents, dana hall received a letter from the vaccine court last week with a troubling message and we want to welcome dana now. good morning, dana. >> good morning, alisyn, thank you for having me. >> tell us about the letter that you got from the federal vaccine court and what it told you. >> this letter basically is asking us to provide them with a theory of why we believe the vaccines caused the autism and provide an expert medical opinion which is the different part. we have the theories, we just cannot find medical experts who are willing to come forth and risk losing their medical license here in the united states to represent our children and to share the story. and you know what, it's not just that. it also in some ways, it sounds like basically, it's a
dead end for some parents. let me read an excerpt of the letter send to the 5,000 families who were waiting for some sort of decision. it says the three special masters designed to hear the test cases ruled there was no reliable evidence that the vaccines caused autism spectrum disorders. the courts had heard the appeals and the test cases all agreed with the special masters there was no reliable evidence supporting vaccine causation. dana, what did you think when you read that? >> i think they're looking in the wrong places. there is evidence out there. the evidence is there, the science is there. the answers are there. they're just choosing not to find those answers. >> i want to bring in mary holland right now. mary, you have studied this issue for the better part of ten years, you're a teacher at nyu law school and you've also set up a foundation and advocacy, i should say nonprofit group to help parents who are in this case. and this letter that's gone
out to the 5,000 people who are waiting for some sort of judgment. is this the end of the line for them? >> it probably is, alisyn. the omnibus office and proceeding has been going on over eight years with the 5,000 claims and tested two theories. did mercury inductees cause audition, did the mmr, measles, mumps and rubella cause autism they decided in six test cases, no, vaccines don't cause autism. and court of appeals, the decision, no. they said to the families, look, if you have nothing different than the test cases, let us know. >> and as we heard from dana, it sounds like they're making the families jump through almost impossible legal hoops. they want them to go out and drum up their own medical expert and come up with a new medical theory? why are they making it so tough? >> well, they feel the court
of federal claims believes it went through the steps it needed to go through. i don't see it that way. i did write an amicus brief on behalf of a number of organizations and we don't think the process is care. it's not a normal court. no normal judge, no jury, no rules of civil procedure, it was set up for an administrative proceeding and functions like a court. it wasn't fair, but it's probably the end. line for now. however, people like dana can preserve their claims if they exit the program in a particular way and they may be able to bring claims in normal courts later. >> at some point in the future. however, let me read one more from the letter, unless you have different evidence or theories not presented in the test cases the results in the test case indicate that your claim is unlikely to be successful. we've heard from medical experts on this show before that vaccine do know the cause autism. why do you think the federal
government has found that and so many parents feel differently? >> well, the federal government now says that there must be an environmental factor. in this proceeding, they didn't find the evidence convincing that vaccines do cause autism. this story is not over. the science is going forward. i believe at the end of the day, we will look back at this proceeding in shame and we will say this was an opportunity to get at the truth and to find the real issues and we didn't do it. it was not a fair trial. >> dana, what do you think when you hear mary's conclusion, do you feel as though you're at a dead end. >> i feel that mary is absolutely correct. that's exactly what we feel. and i do feel like we will find the answers. i feel like the answers are already there. i think they're being overlooked. >> and dana, dana and mary, thank you so much for coming in to explain where we are now with this and obviously will go on, there's a supreme court case in october. thanks for coming in.

formula are recalled after beetles were found in the product and our next guest says he had a complaint back in july and thinks it sparked the recall. >> wait until you hear about the problem. a parent got a shocking surprise in the children's formula. >> hi. >> tell us what happened in july when you trying to feed your ten month old baby twins. >> my wife was preparing bottles the morning of july 24th and as see was scooping out the formula from the container she noticed a foreign subsnce, which appeared to look like a fetus of some kind of rodent is what we immediately thought. >> oh. >> and we had taken pictures of it, sent it to a couple of friends, saying what do you think this is, everybody replied, mouse, rat. >> oh. >> and we immediately contacted similac via strong
moms, i think their customer relations department. left an e-mail and described to them what they found. >> that's revolting. >> now they've recalled as you know, they've pulled the stuff off the shelves all over the place, and they think, people think it could have cost them $100 million dollars in lost revenue and it's understandable. you brought this in, you have it here. >> it's still in there. >> yes, it's still there. >> on camera three, hold up what this is. this is, i can imagine, flip it up a little. >> don't let it-- >> i won't let it loose, i have to scoop it out. >> while you're showing this, we are going to read you a statement from abbott laboratories shall the makers of similac and say we are going to do whatever it is to maintain the trust of parents, but similar part of this recall pose no immediate health risk. >> i don't think i can look at that, i really don't. >> and this is what you found. >> oh, god. >> there it is. that little lump down there.
>> i won't touch it. >> so your wife sees that and freaks out what did you think when you saw that. >> we were horrified and we're looking at it, what is this and we found it halfway through the container and so the children drank half of the container. >> and what has similac said about this or offered you? >> they did call me first thing monday morning like i said, this happened on a saturday and they asked me to tell them what i found and i described it to them. and they said that they wanted to send out a self-addressed box and they wanted me to send them the sample. i spoke to a lot of people and they said do not let at that sample out of your hands. so i told them you're more than welcome to come to my house and take a look at it and tell hee what it is, let's take it to a lab and test it and find out what it is. >> they refused to do that. >> they said no we do not do that. >> other people reportedly seeing beetle droppings and beatles from the plant.
will you ever buy a similac product. >> we immediately went to the store and bought infamil and the twins would not take to it at nine months old. >> that's what happens they get used to the taste. >> we had no choice, but to use it and sifting through every container we bought and since the recall came out we immediately switched over to the liquid and found out from the doctors we can wean them off the formula thank god and won't be using it anymore. >> well, this is truly disturbing. >> it is. >> and it does sound as though your case prompted something and luckily, no other parent hopefully will have to find a horrible surprise like that. >> i hope not, this is just-- it's very disturbing, it really, it's just something that's constantly on our minds and we worry about our children getting sick, they are fine, thank god. but you know, no one has told us, they're saying that it's not harmful, but as parents. >> it's hard to know and that's why on foxnews.com we
have all the information that parents need to know about the recall, go to foxnews.com, it's all there. the product numbers, all of that information is right there. michael, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. >> thank you for the story. meanwhile, on a lighter note. stephen colbert testifying in character before congress about migrant labor, but is he mocking the system? was the chairwoman morking the system? is congress wasting its time. congressman jason chavettz not happy about his appearance. >> las vegas is a hot seat, one particular spot might be too vot for a swimming pool. how swimming in one pool could get you burned.

it turns out, i did not know this, most soil is at ground level. if we could put a man on the moon. why can't we make the earth waist high, where is the funding. >> that was a special session in congress. comedian stephen colbert testified before the submarine committee on immigration and he may get laughs on his show, but his act was no laughing matter to a lot of people. some people in that room. was his one-man show a waste of congress time and a taxpayers moan? we're joined by utah congressman jason chaffetz, excuse me, jason, he sits on the house submarine committee of immigration where stephen colbert spoke yesterday. good to see you. >> thanks, i appreciate it. >> looks like the weather is utah is fantastic. good to have you with us. some would say it's a comedic act for five to seven minutes, why get upset? >> well, look, he's the best fake newsman on television and if they're going to have fake
hearing that's the way to do it. we will have spent tens of thousands of dollars of taxpayers money to hold the hearing, i've been on the committee for 21 months, we've only met ten times, never, never, have we brought up a serious bill to discuss immigration and immigration is a huge problem. >> why waste the time, is that what your point is, why waste even seven minutes. >> well, it's such an farce. such a production. i have sponsored and co-sponsored 12 bills on immigration, none of those have ever had time given to the committee to discuss them. i sponsored one bill that had 12 republicans, 10 democrats, very bipartisan and now over 60 co-sponsors, somehow the congress didn't have time to discuss those bills, but did have time for stephen colbert. that's what's so infuriating. >> i don't know that i would blame stephen colbert, probably when he got the call, are you kidding me, they're actually going to let me do
this. i'm basically doing a segment for his show. i mean, i don't know, are you going to invite rachel ray to do a cooking segment in front of congress next week? >> i mean, this is why nancy pelosi's about to get fired. see doesn't get it. everybody in this country knows on both sides of the aisle that immigration is a problem. the problem is congress isn't doing anything about it. why do you think arizona and utah and other states are looking at doing their own thing. because congress has failed to do its fundamental job and responsibility of controlling the borders of taking care of the immigration problem. and so they bring up stephen colbert? it just confirms that congress is not doing its job. that's, that's the heart of the problem. >> i just wonder when he was booked, if they thought he was going to speak seriously? because he had told them he had spent a day you know, working in the fields and wanted to relate that to them, but they-- a lot of people just looked stunned that he was basically staying in character. he stayed in character the entire time and doing a segment that's undoubtedly
going to air on his show on monday. >> yeah, i mean, that's-- it's like, hey, let's just create a venue for him to do stand-up. you shouldn't have to turn on c-span to get your fake news, but that's, it's just so offensive that way. when you've got serious people hurting for this, legal immigration on the country, you've got people waiting in line for some 22 years to get through the process and serious bills that both members, members on both sides of the house want to bring forward and speaker pelosi said well, it will draw attention to the issue and he's an american. >> everybody knows the problem. >> it did draw attention, we're talking about it and everybody is talking about it across the country. >> that's probably true, it did bring attention. she said, you're right that he's an american of course he is, and it was appropriate, but i don't think she saw it. i think she made those comments before she actually saw it on tape. >> yeah, again, i didn't even attend it. i had a-- i had a choice to make so i
attended the fake conference or hearing there or do i go back home to utah and attend the viewing of one of our fallen soldiers from afghanistan. so i came back to utah and it's just sad because the immigration problem is very real. stephen colbert is the funiest guy, been on his show, leg wrestled the guy, but that's not the venue, that's not the venue. >> if you have video of you leg wrestling with stephen i want to see that. you've been on his show over 20 times. >> i don't think i've been on that many times, but i leg wrestled the guy four times. >> that's it. >> and he is, he is freakishly strong, you wouldn't realize it, he's very, very strong. >> especially his legs. all right, thank you so much for joining us from utah. . >> all right, thank you. >> that was a news flash, thank you very much, mike. all right, meanwhile, here are your headlines, what's happening at this hour, the fbi searches eight homes in minneapolis and chicago as part of an investigation.

university. joining us now is massachusetts state representative danielle webster. daniel, thank you for being with us. >> it's my pleasure, good morning. >> good morning. >> now, rotc wasn't it banned in the late '60s in harvard. >> 1969. >> the purpose for that, that was during the vietnam war of course. >> my understanding it was a protest of the vietnam war. so, now the president doesn't want rotc on campus and her rational because she doesn't support the don't ask, don't tell policy. what do you think is unfair about that? >> well, i think it's entirely unfair. if you really think about it, many of the principles on which our country was founded are the very same principles that harvard university was founded on and i think it's admirable that there are young students at harvard university that want on campus students to participate in rotc and the school has made a political decision not to allow that to continue on campus, or to
reinstate it on campus. based on the fact that they're unhappy with the don't ask, don't tell policy. >> yeah, but beyond that of course is the illegal immigrant argument here, which is that harvard would welcome them as part of the dream act to give them an opportunity here. what the school has to say. we very much want to make sure that all young people living in our communities can serve in the military. does the dream act does that for thousands of students and has been supported by the military leaders and the president said many times that she very much looks forward to the day when the opportunity to pursue military service will be available to all of our students who have the ability and the desire to serve. what do you say about that? >> well, i don't knowing congress should be able to have its cake and eat it, too. my view of the dream act is that it's just another opportunity to create amnesty and many may view it as simply we're only going to open our doors to a few students who are-- who have been here since they've been under 16 years old and attended a public high
school, have a couple of years of college under their service or military service, but when you look at the statute you see that it's eligible to people under 35 years old. so, frankly, i find it hypocritical that harvard is willing to open its doors to illegal immigrants and allow them to attend their university, but at the same time, discourage their students from participating in rotc which is designed really to train young people who want to protect the laws of our country. >> it sounds like they're trying to crack legislation at a college or a university. daniel, thanks for joining us and bringing us that story from the great state of massachusetts. >> thank you. >> coming up on the show, looking to spruce up your kitchen, don't want to break the bank? home depot is here, how you can update your look by tweaking a few things, your cabinets and your counter tops next. ♪ playing )
